In the Vault section, there are currently 4 sections:

-ECW Hardcore TV, with 4 episodes from 1992-1994

-WCCW Championship Wrestling Oct 31 1982

-Three Legends of Wrestling episodes (the WWE 24/7 show)

-Old School with five MSG cards (10/91.10/84,4/81, 6/77 and 3/75).

I haven't checked anything else yet.

 At the moment, the streaming is very jerky and almost impossible to watch.  What worries me is that I can't seem to see any local downloading or pre-loading of the video.  You know, you hit pause just as it starts and wait for it to download the entire show before you press play to ensure smooth playback.  It seems to act as though it's "live" even if it isn't.  Hopefully, this is just a launch-day issue.

I had hoped for much more TV content than this. I dig that they have all of the PPV's up, but the draw for me to this was having entire episodes of the old territories.

Not once did they ever even hint that this would be available on launch day. Anything over and above the PPVs is just a bonus.
Would you complain if you bought a suit and when you got home you found out that it didn't include a shirt and tie?

Not sure why you're being so condescending about it. I'm just saying that I'm disappointed and hoped for more. Is that so bad?

I've taken a look at this on 3 devices so far. On the PS3 and PC, the footage looks good, except for the stuttering issues. On my top-of-the-line HTC One Android smartphone, which plays Bluray quality files in perfect quality, the video quality is very bad due to a low bitrate. I'm streaming the video over my WiFi internet and not my mobile connection. No idea why the bitrate is so low, but that's something to keep an eye out for.

*** Best part, there is no logo (watermark or not), of any kind on the footage!!***  Awesome!

Are you doing something out-of-the-ordinary to get the channel in Australia? I thought that only the U.S. would be able to get the initial signup.

If not, it sorta sucks that Canada has to wait until enarly Christmas to have a crack at getting this.

I say 'working'. It pauses so much it's hard to watch anything at the moment.

I think they might follow the lead of Netflix, by not trying very hard to stop people watching from from outside of their designated country.

Yep, same issue I'm having.

Trying to watch Starrcade '84, but it will freeze on video while audio continues to play. And it's hard to move/fast foward due to this issue.

Working fine now. It's a little slow to navigate, but I have to say, it's a pretty amazing service. Video quality and sound are great. I'm going to be watching this a lot.

It's just like any normal PayPal payment.

Any material on the WWE Network featuring Chris Benoit is preceded with the following message:

"The following program is presented in its original form. It may contain some content that does not reflect WWE's corporate views and may not be suitable for all viewers. WWE characters are fictitious and do not reflect the personal lives of the actors portraying them. Viewer discretion is advised. You can block access to this program and others like it using the Parental Control feature in your WWE Network account settings."

It was smart of WWE to put anything featuring Benoit under the parental advisory window. Now anyone who wants to block it out can do so and they can leave the choice of whether someone should watch his matches up to the viewer.
